Biodiversity and Conservation

Biodiversity refers to the variety of all forms of life on earth, including the different plants, animals, micro-organisms, the genes they contain and the ecosystem they form. It is considered at three main levels including species diversity, genetic diversity and ecosystem diversity. Articles on all aspects of biological diversity, its description analysis, conservation and its controlled rational use by humankind. The Journal also provides a forum for examining the conflicts between sustainable development and human dependence on biodiversity especially in such fields as agriculture environmental management and biotechnology.

Biodiversity Management

"Biological diversity means the variability among living organisms from all sources including, inter alia, terrestrial, marine and other aquatic ecosystems and the ecological complexes of which they are part; this includes diversity within species, between species and of ecosystems.”The management of Biodiversity can be done by Managing the sustainable forest and harvesting Trees, and the Ecological Restoration.

Forest Biodiversity & Conservation

Forests are biologically diverse systems, representing some of the richest biological areas on Earth. They offer a variety of habitats for plants, animals and micro-organisms. However, forest biodiversity is increasingly threatened as a result of deforestation, fragmentation, climate change and other stressors. Tropical, temperate and boreal forests offer a diverse set of habitats for plants, animals and micro-organisms. Consequently forests hold the majority of the world’s terrestrial species. However these biologically rich systems are increasingly threatened, largely as a result of human activity.

Forest Ecology & Ecosystem Services

Forest ecosystems deliver multiple goods and services and, traditionally, forest owners tend to have a high interest in goods in the form of merchantable wood. As a consequence, forest management often aims to increase timber production and economic returns through intervention into natural processes. However, forests provide further services, including carbon sequestration, water quantity and quality, and preservation of biodiversity. In order to develop and implement strategies for sustainable forest management, it is important to anticipate the long-term effects of different forest management alternatives on the ability of the forest to provide ecosystem goods and services.

Forest Ecology & Ecosystem Services

The life on this planet begins as forest dwellers. They continued to depend on forests to meet a lot of their needs. Even today people depend on the forest for paper, timber, fuel wood, medicine, and fodder. The basic forest product people generally used by the people are bamboos, canes, fruit, fiber, timber, medicinal plants, grasses and essential oils.

Sustainable Forest Management

Sustainable forest management addresses forest degradation and deforestation while increasing direct benefits to people and the environment. At the social level, sustainable forest management contributes to livelihoods, income generation and employment. At the environmental level, it contributes to important services such as carbon sequestration and water, soil and biodiversity conservation. Many of the world's forests and woodlands, especially in the tropics and subtropics, are still not managed sustainably. Some countries lack appropriate forest policies, legislation, institutional frameworks and incentives to promote sustainable forest management, while others may have inadequate funding and lack of technical capacity. Where forest management plans exist, they are sometimes limited to ensuring the sustained production of wood, without paying attention to the many other products and services that forests offer.

Restoration Ecology

Ecological restoration is an intentional activity that initiates or accelerates the recovery of an ecosystem with respect to its health, integrity and sustainability. Frequently, the ecosystem that requires restoration has been degraded, damaged, transformed or entirely destroyed as the direct or indirect result of human activities. In some cases, these impacts to ecosystems have been caused or aggravated by natural agencies such as wildfire, floods, storms, or volcanic eruption, to the point at which the ecosystem cannot recover its pre disturbance state or its historic developmental trajectory. Restoration attempts to return an ecosystem to its historic trajectory. Ecological restoration is the process of assisting the recovery of an ecosystem that has been degraded, damaged, or destroyed

Non-Timber Forest Products

Non-timber forest products (NTFPs) are any product or service other than timber that is produced in forests. They include fruits and nuts, vegetables, fish and game, medicinal plants, resins, essences and a range of barks and fibers such as bamboo, rattans, and a host of other palms and grasses. Over the past two decades, governments, conservation and development agencies and non-government organizations have encouraged the marketing and sale of NTFPs as a way of boosting income for poor people in the tropics and encouraging forest conservation. But different users define NTFPs differently, depending on their interests and objectives. At CIFOR, the emphasis is on understanding how people use forest resources, and on helping to improve the contribution these resources make to the livelihoods of the world’s rural poor. Accordingly, CIFOR uses an inclusive definition of NTFPs — one that even encompasses wood products, such as those used for woodcarving or fuel.

Forest Product Trading

The forest products sector is estimated to contribute about 1.2 percent of world GDP and approximately 3 percent of international merchandise trade. Industry annual turnover exceeds US$200 billion for four product categories: round wood and sawn wood, panels, pulp, and paper. The forest products industry is employing over 13 million people in nearly 200 nations; STATE OF THE WORLD’S FORESTS 2005.The timber based forest product trading will put a bad impact on the enviourmental condition like bad weather effects, lack of rainfall by cutting the trees or trading of the wood products. To avoid such kind of problem the people should focus on the non timber forest products.

Soil Conservation

It generally aims to prevent the loss of soil. So agriculture is the is the best way to avoid such type of problems. The various methods are adopted for conservation of the soil like Agronomic practices, Contour farming, Mulching, crop rotations, Field strip cropping, Dry farming method etc. A sequel to the deforestation is typically large scale erosion, loss of soil nutrients and sometimes total desertification

Ecological Behavior

Shrinking natural resources, overwhelmed landfill sites, pollution, the depletion of the ozone layer, and the greenhouse effect challenge human existence. Behavioural ecology in its broadest sense is the study of adaptations, and the selective pressures that yield them, in different ecological environments. Some adaptations are behavioural and sometimes behavior drives the evolution of new adaptations by creating new selective environments.

Environmental Management

It is the Management and control on human impact for saving the natural resources of the environment. Hence the environmental management system came in to force to control this kind of the activity and protect the biodiversity. the basic benefit of the envoimental management system is Improved environmental performance, Enhanced compliance, Pollution prevention, Resource conservation, New customers/markets etc.

Marine Biodiversity

Biodiversity is 'Life on Earth'. The marine biodiversity refers to the life present under water. Marine biodiversity is important to protect because today, just as always, humans are dependent on the Earth's resources for their livelihood, health and well being In Belize, efforts have been made to conserve the incredible biodiversity that exists in the country. In addition to seasonal closures and catch limits on some fishery products, many national parks and marine reserves have been established in an effort to protect these natural areas.

Wildlife Risk

Wildlife risk refers to free-living wild animals can be classified into three major groups on the basis of key epizootiological criteria: (I) Risks associated with “spill-over” from domestic animals to wildlife populations living in proximity; (ii)Risks related directly to human intervention, via host or parasite translocations; and (iii)Risks with no overt human or domestic animal involvement.
